Israel indicts Imam for incitement to Murder Jews


Israel National News

The Jerusalem district attorney on Wednesday submitted an indictment at the local magistrates court against Muslim preacher Omar Abu Saara, who called to “slaughter” Jews in a speech on the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism.

Abu Saara is a 49-year-old living in eastern Jerusalem, and last November 28 he said in a speech before Muslims at the Al-Kabali Mosque “I say to the Jews explicitly, the time has come to slaughter you” – a point he repeated numerous times to thunderous calls of support.

The hateful preacher was charged with several other charges related to incitement and racism, aside from the central charge of incitement to violence.

“The time has come to go to war with you, the time has come to kill you. And we, with God’s help, will destroy you,” said Abu Saara in his tirade calling for murderous violence against Jews.

In his speech, the preacher added “we, the Muslims, the correct ones, the faithful and the soldiers of the Islamic caliphate, will arrive to the land to free it from your soiling, and today this is close by.”

“So go on and do what you want for now,” he said addressing the Jewish state of Israel. “Now you have the power.”

According to the indictment, Abu Saara had the inciting speech recorded and uploaded to YouTube the next day to further spread his incitement.
